How to Make Money for Searching the Internet

by Junou Mathieu

Certain companies, such as Swagbucks, provide incentives to users to encourage them to use their search engine. If you use the Swagbucks search engine, you will randomly gain six to 50 Swagbucks points. Typically, you will gain points from only three to five searches you make per day. After you accumulate a certain amount of points, you can redeem the points for a prize, such as an Amazon e-Gift Card or PayPal.


Register for a new account on Swagbucks. You must enter information, such as your full name, email address, zip code, date of birth, to successfully sign up on Swagbucks. Check your inbox and confirm your registration. Swagbucks will reward you with 30 Swagbucks points.


Log into your account. If you aren't logged in, you won't be able to earn any points. Hover your mouse over "Earn" on the Swagbucks navigation bar. Click on "Search" on the drop-down menu.


Enter queries into the Swagbucks search engine. Wait a few seconds before each query; Swagbucks doesn't tolerate abuse of the search engine. After a few searches, you will win some Swagbucks points.


Continue earning Swagbucks points for a prize. Under "Redeem" on the Swagbucks navigation bar, select "Swag Store." Redeem your points to receive $5 to $100 in your PayPal account. You can also exchange your points for gift cards and items.
